Publisher's Summary

The Patterson sisters have lived in the Earl of Longmore's house since they were orphaned as children. When the old Earl dies, the estate passes to Kynan Trent, a London merchant and descendant of the despised Welsh branch of the family. The title is a surprise to him and he's even more surprised to find himself responsible for five lively and independent young women. There are tales of hidden treasure belonging to the Patterson family, but in reality the girls are penniless and their futures look bleak. When Kynan invites guests to Longmore, including Julia Spencer, the woman he is planning to marry, some very unexpected emotions are stirred....A historical romance set in 19th century Dorset.

Light Georgian romance

Cinnamon Sky is a hard to find, sometimes out of print late-Georgian era romance by British-born author Janet Woods. It is mild as historicals go, with no explicit scenes, and a lot of gentle, sparkling humour. The orphan/rags-to-riches story, while not original, is well-handled, highlighted by the distinct personalities of the five delightful Patterson sisters. (Although I could have done with less of the stock Other Woman narrative). The narrator is very good, especially at the little girls' varying voices (the hero is a bit gruff/raspy-sounding). I would recommend this to readers who like humourous Regency-era romances such as Pride and Prejudice (Cinnamon takes place just before that era, around 1800); orphan stories; stories about sisters; or quietly intelligent (as opposed to fiery) heroines. I think you'll enjoy this.

Good!!

I liked this book because of the sisters, especially the older two sisters and it was a little humorous at times. I would recommend it!
